    Regarding TCPMP on WM6 and playing WMA or WMV files.

    Installing TCPMP on the Treo 750 after doing the WM6 update, you'll notice it will give you an error that WMV and WMA codecs are not available as they were on WM5.

    This is because on WM6, the codec .dll files were re-named from wmadecoder.dll to wma9prodecoder.dll and wmvdecoder.dll to wmv9decoder.dll. As a result TCPMP can not find them.

    All I did is extract the wma9predecoder.dll and wmv9decoder.dll and rename them back to how they were in WM5, to wmadecoder.dll and wmvdecoder.dll.

    Download and install these two .dll files to your Treo's /windows directory. They will not overwrite or interfere with the built in .dlls of the new name, but they will be there for programs like TCPMP that are looking for them.
    So far they work just like they did on WM5. If something ends up not working, I can always take the files from the WM5 ROM and make them available, but for now I think having the latest ones from WM6 is better since they should be fully backward compatible as well as support new additions

    Unfortunately this eats up about 1.2MB of your RAM. So only do this if you need to restore WMA/WMV support to TCPMP.
    It's really too bad Windows doesn't support symbolic links or you could just create a symbolic link with the name wmvdecoder.dll to point to wmv9decoder.dll and so forth, thus using no memory.

    Files are here:

    http://www.gadgetech.info/treo/hacks...wmvdecoder.dll
    Or just go to:

    I don't have a web page up for this yet, I'll do that when I get around to it.

    U R AWESOME, man!!!

    I just finished upgrading last night, and was putting apps and things back today. I ran in to this problem when I was testing my ORB server to stream DishTV to my phone; obviously disappointed and frustrated.

    Quick search on the forum, and there's your post! Again, thanks.

    I don't think I use these codecs for anything other than TCPMP, so I'm going to try simply renaming them rather than making copies. That should save the wasted space.

    I'll post back with results, and later on if anything gums up due to the rename.

    I remember trying the TCPMP and getting messy pixels (uninstalled, installed twice)-
    But now that I have wm6, should I install the tcpmp again and try this "fix" for the wm6 and try it and see what happens?

    I tried the default media player and it played a test video I converted to 240x240 just fine- so do I really need the tcpmp?

    The default player works just fine for basic playback, but it is extremely feature limited. One of the biggest annoyances is that it doesn't do full-screen scaling gracefully, often cropping the sides of the picture to fill the square screen. There are no adjustments to manage this.

    As a TCPMP user, you're probably familiar with the plethora of controls, adjustments, etc., available in TCPMP. There really is no comparison with PWMP. The latter really isn't suitable for watching anything not specifically formatted for the 240x240 screen (which 99.99999999999999999% -- a precise figure, mind you -- of the material out there isn't).

    As for the patch, yes, you'll have to download these and waste the space. I was unable to rename the originals through File Manager or via mobile device center on Vista.

    Taylorh, can you upload or give me a link to the most stable TCPMP player so I can download it and try it. Prefereably in cab extension-?

    I'll give it another crack and see what happens this time.
    Thanks!
